Hooray! This project is fully funded

This resource I am requesting is a selection of leveled books for my beginner readers. These leveled books will provide opportunities for students to practice reading strategies at their own instructional level at home. Many of my students are faced with not being able to practice daily reading due to limited books at home. I would like to provide a take home library with lots of fiction as well as nonfiction "JUST RIGHT" books for my beginner readers. I teach all the core subject areas: math, language arts, science, social studies, and health in a predominately African American, Title One school. There are 99% of the children who qualify for free/reduced lunch. I thank you in advance for funding this much needed selection of books that will benefit my first grade students. This take home library will build a stronger bond between parents and students. My students will have the opportunity to practice various reading strategies and experience the joy of reading through different genres of books. These leveled books will minimize frustration and maximize self-confidence in all readers at every instructional level. The students are going love taking home books that are "JUST RIGHT" for them.
